Husband’s 50th Birthday in Paradise
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

To perfectly articulate what you can expect at Rumors would almost be a disservice to you, as I would want any guest to be as wonderfully surprised as we were. Know that staying with Belinda and Andrew at Rumours will guarantee a holiday of comfort, luxury and adventure. Our Villa was beautiful both inside and out and offered the perfect layout for a family or couples traveling together. Each bedroom overlooked the ocean with deck access to the beach, each had its own x-large bathroom complete with a large and refreshing rain shower. The living room was large and spacious as was the modern kitchen. An outdoor bbq complimented the private pool and hot tub. A private movie room, stocked with hundreds of titles, was a surprise. As was the indoor water wall which kept us soothed and in touch with nature at all times. The oversized deck allowed us to every moment of sunshine, especially in the early morning and late evening. The outdoor showers kept the villa clean and the complimentary kayaks had us on the water several times a day. Belinda and Andrew coordinated a fresh breakfast for us every day and helped guide us to enjoy the best of the best on the island. They even arranged to have a birthday cake for the special occasion. Beyond celebrating my husband’s 50th, we were able to enjoy a week with our son who had a small break from both college and social media. For our family, it was a trip of a lifetime.

Great place to relax and chill out

Easily the best accommodation on the island, supported by truly excellent hosts (Belinda and Andrew) who could not have made us feel more welcome or done more to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. The Platinum Villa was luxury, private and spacious and was everything we needed and, ahhhh, those 200 degree views of the azure waters were incredible and will always stay with us. The stunning accommodation was matched by a very special island, wonderfully warm and beautiful people, and fantastic food enjoyed at all locations from local fish sandwiches on the beach, fresh Ika Mata, and high-end restaurants. The freshly prepared and cooked platters delivered directly to your door were truly memorable and highly recommended. Myself and my three ladies will no doubt be returning again, and for longer than 7 days next time. An unforgettable week in paradise.

We spent our Honeymoon at Rumours Luxury Villas and loved every part of it!!! The staff was really nice, everything was clean and spacious. Great location for walking to nearby stores and markets. Loved the private pool in the Villa; used it a lot more than I expected. Overall, Rumours is the perfect place to relax and enjoy life with my wife. We will stay here again next time we visit Raratonga.

Our favourite place to relax!

This was our second visit to Rumours, only this time we took our friends from the UK as well. They were bowled over with the Platinum Villa. They said they felt like they were on a movie set, it was so awesome. For us, Rumours provided utter relaxation in a beautiful setting. The villa is spotlessly clean, extremely well appointed, and luxurious. The private pool and beachfront deck is perfect. Belinda and Andrew will help in any way they can. For us, that included organising our groceries in advance, arranging a birthday cake, sorting a hire car, and booking meals for us. The most impressive thing was when we asked where we might buy fresh fish for the BBQ they arranged for some fresh tuna to be delivered straight off the fishing boat, along with a salad, soy sauce and wasabi. You couldn't ask for better service! Furthermore, the staff are lovely; really friendly but completely respectful of your privacy. Thank you Belinda, Andrew and the team. You are awesome, and so is Rumours!
